History museum opens exhibit on Supreme Court

The North Carolina Museum of History in Raleigh will debut its newest exhibit that celebrates the 200th anniversary of the North Carolina Supreme Court on Nov. 15.

“Law and Justice: The Supreme Court of North Carolina, 1819-2019” will highlight stories, court cases, artifacts, and images of the state’s highest court and and “reveals the untold narrative of the state’s highest court from its founding until the present day,” the North Carolina Administrative Office of the Courts said in a press release. 

“We are so excited about this new exhibit and the opportunity it provides to experience the evolution of our state’s highest court over the past two hundred years,” Chief Justice Cheri Beasly said in the release.  

The exhibit will display accounts of men and women who devoted themselves to addressing the most pressing legal issues of their day, from the death penalty to civil rights to slavery.

“It is my hope that through this exhibit, North Carolinians will recognize the important role of the Supreme Court and join the celebration of our highest court’s bicentennial year,” Former Associate Justice Willis Whichard said. 

The exhibit will run through May. It is a collaboration of the North Carolina Museum of History, the North Carolina Supreme Court Historical Society and the North Carolina Judicial Branch.
